SugarPea Designs: Holly Jolly Christmas tree card tutorial+video!

Hey guys!

Stephanie with you today to share some Christmas inspiration! I don't know if you are like me, but I'm always in need of another this, another that, etc. during the holidays.

And what better than to dig out those ink that I seem to collect (can't help it, I need them all!) to create a simple, yet fun and colorful card! 

I combined some bright red cardstock from the Happy Holidays Patterned Paper Collection and the O Christmas Tree stamp set that I wanted to use for the very first time. Now, if you are not a layer crafter, no worries, you could definitely create the Christmas tree look directly onto your cardbase, obtaining a one-layer card and it would be just as fun. 

Here's the video of the whole cardmaking process, if you are interested! View it on our Youtube channel in HD or here:

Thanks for coming the blog today :-)

LDRS Creative: Parade and ornaments!

Hey guys!
I back with you today for LDRS Creative to share about something old and new coming together on the same project!
Yes, you read well, I decided to bring two things that I love dearly together, such as a fun stamp set and gorgeous ornament dies.
I really like to give my stamp sets a versatile twist, so Parade was the perfect choice to pair with the new Winter Land paperpad and ornament dies in the shop.
To create this card, I stamped the image onto white cardstock to colour it with Copic markers and then die-cut it with the largest shape from the Allifair Build-A-Card die set. This was a perfect piece, because I wanted the little girl to be like she was looking at the Grace and Peace ornament dies right in the corner of the card. I die-cut the filligree from the Winter Land paperpad, then created the cardbase with the same matching sheets.
Nothing fancy was necessary to complete the card, since I wanted the focus to be on both the image and the die-cuts. I added a few flowers and sequins here and there, and voilà!
Do you mix old and new items too, sometimes? Make sure to come and tell us on the LDRS Creative Facebook group, where lots is happening! Until then, xxx

IAR: Monthly challenge: Anything goes!

Me again today, for a quick update on the blog :-)

I was super eager to show you all this folded card using all the gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses, along with a super sweet stamp from Stamping Bella called Tiny Townie Garden Lily.

I don't know about you, but I really like when I can reuse a stamp for multiple occasions, and this card called for a non-traditional Christmas twist!

I first started by stamping the image with Desert Sand ink from Memento to get a no-line colouring look, so that the whole card would have a soft look matching the beautiful flowers I had picked for my inspiration.

And to do things differently, I decided to create a center-folded card that would open up with some twine hidden behind the image.

I used these I Am Roses products:

BG5 or GB4

And I hope you will try out the Anything Goes challenge on the IAR blog!
